June 2021 Online Classes

Download the Zoom app on your computer. Registration takes about 15 minutes, and it costs nothing.

Zoom Etiquette: Just as you arrived quietly and settled in a little early at Grace, please arrive five minutes early on Zoom and settle in your body. This means setting up a place in your house for your practice where you will be undisturbed for the hour; turning off your phone; having a glass of water nearby; and, most important, taking your seat. Zoom works best on a laptop or desk computer. The phone is unreliable.Taking Your Seat: you will need to sit close enough to your computer to hear instructions and see me.

Om shanti!

Never was there a time when I was not I and you were not you. Nor will there ever be a time when I am not I and you are not you. Of this there can be no doubt. ~The Gita

Those doing soul work, who want the searing truth more than solace or applause, know each other right away. Those who want something else turn and take a seat in another room. Soul-makers find each others’ company. ~Coleman Barks, The Soul of Rumi


The teachings continue to fly.

I offer a two-year Self-study course beginning in February that collects the literature, practices, and teachings in the Grace repertoire aimed at deepening our somatic, lived experience as human beings together on earth.

In the first year of our course we explore this differentiated “I” through mantra, study of the Upanishads and the Gita, Shambhala principles, pranayama techniques, and Mindfulness meditation. In year two we move out toward integration/re-integration, working with Yin Yoga, the yoga of Savasana, postures, pedagogy, and methods for communicating with others through our own experience of Yoga.

In 2021 we gather for 8 weekends, ten hours each weekend, for a total 80 contact hours. We meet virtually until it is safe to meet at my home sanctuary in Newport. Throughout, I offer readings, writing assignments, exercises and practices. We share. Students commit to attend and participate in all sessions. The cost for the 2021 sessions is $1200. Prerequisites: Self-study, familiarity with some Yoga scriptures and history, and a yearning to go deep.

For the past twenty-two years I have joyfully led yoga and meditation classes. I credit Sri Dharma Mittra with leading me into the depth and understanding of the Yoga; I teach through his grace.  

With the love and support of family and friends, we birthed the Grace School of Yoga in 2009. Since then I have mentored many spiritual seekers through our teacher training program and daily classes. I continue to teach courses through this website, so that we may practice together to remember our Inmost Being.  

And here you are: Welcome Home.
